drank Spiced Green by Adagio Teas
91 tasting notes

I got this in my green tea sampler from Adagio ages ago, and had quite forgotten about it. This is a delightful little tea! Light and smooth, and lightly spiced. Normally these spices (cinnamon, cardamon & ginger) are not ones I would think go in a green tea, but it is quite good. I love it when tea from the tea shelf surprises me

Love Kashmiri (green based) chais. Although I have no clue why Adagio has both this and “green chai” or masala chai and oriental spice for that matter. Seems reduntant… I wish they’d stop wasting inventory space and come out w/ new stuff. Then again I don’t get Adagio a lot of the time.

I haven’t really gotten into chais, so that’s probably why the spice combination is new to me. Usually I think of those spices as ones that go with something sweet, and since I never sweeten my green tea, I was just surprised I liked the combination.

Yeah I add milk to my masala chais (but I also drink them clean), but I just can’t fathom putting milk in my Kashmiri chai (chais are the only teas I ever put milk in) even though that’s how it’s traditionally prepared. I also always skip the sweetener in all chai (all tea for that matter), even though it’s traditional.

I love tea, but hate jasmine and melon, and am always looking to try something new — which is why my tea collection is out of control!
